What Do You Want To Say To Lexis-Nexis? MIPTC Meets With The New Vice President and Managing Director of LexisNexis

Our law firm recently switched legal research providers to Westlaw from Lexis-Nexis for a variety of reasons, and high on the list were both price and ease of use.  Now, the new Lexis VP and our local rep want to go to lunch next Tuesday to discuss why we switched and get an update about lawyers' reactions to Lexis' products.   We use a number of Lexis products:  Martindale Hubbell,, Time Matters, CiteCheck, CourtLink and are considering CaseMap.

The email requesting the meeting said in part that Lexis would like "to get your input to help attorneys in small practices and shape LexisNexis for the future."

I'm not sure whether the lunch came as a result of our switch or whether they're actually interested.  In any event, if there's something you want to reach the top ranks of LexisNexis, comment away below, and I'll be sure to pass it along. 

After lunch, I'll follow up with the company's response.

Where do I start? Fix Time Matters. It doesn't work with Quick Books Pro and regularly loses data during the transfer. If there's one corrupted file, the whole billing system upchucks.
Lexis research prices are way over market. Search engines get better results cheaper. I've switched to Westlaw because I was tired of getting nickeled and dimed for every little database I looked at.
Lawyer ratings don't help me get clients. I don't need an ego boost - I need something that appeals to my clients. The common person has no idea what an AV rating means.
I'd love to purchase their litigation software, but as I understand it, the program doesn't link to Time Matters, so I have to enter all my case information again? NOT!

Martindale's website interface is absolutely horrible and needs some serious work. It's unbelieveably difficult to use and doesn't upload well and doesn't present me well to my clients. I need a better program.
